The schedule for the NFL conference championship games is set.
In the AFC, the New England Patriots will play the Denver Broncos. That game will start at 3 p.m. eastern on Sunday, and it’ll air on CBS. Denver opened as a 6.5-point favourite.
In the NFC, the San Francisco 49ers will play the Seattle Seahawks. That game will start at 6:30 p.m. eastern on Sunday, and it’ll air on Fox. Seattle opened as a 4-point favourite.
All things considered, they are two of the best conference title games we could have asked for.
The Broncos and Patriots played a classic game in Week 11. After trailing 24-0, New England came back to win 34-31 in overtime. It’s also the fourth meeting between Tom Brady and Peyton Manning in the playoffs.
In the NFC, the Seahawks-49ers has become one of the league’s better temporary rivalries. Seattle beat San Francisco 29-3 at home in Week 2. San Francisco beat Seattle 19-17 in Week 14.
